    Just one night stay whilst in town for a concert but the hotel was clean and tidy, the room comfortable and staff friendly and efficient. Nice breakfast but a bit overpriced. Would stay here again .

    Hotel from a golden age

    There are few gems left like the Old Ship. It is an old school hotel, so a bit rough around the edges. But that is part of the charm. A bit of TLC could do with being done in terms of upkeep, but much rather that than another bland chain hotel.
